CHARLESTON, S.C.—With Donald Trump now the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, his past business deals—including his tax assessments—are under intense scrutiny.
The USA Today turned to Womble Carlyle attorney Morris Ellison for insight into the tax laws governing Trump’s vast real estate holdings. Ellison doesn’t offer any political commentary but says real estate developers frequently appeal tax assessments. He also tells USA Today that it is difficult to compare one company’s volume of tax appeals to another company’s.
